The products made from animal hide by means of tanning, are referred to as leather goods. The process of tanning animal hide makes it suitable for various applications such as wallets, clothing, footwear, and others. The inherent qualities of leather such as dustproof, fireproof, crack-proof, and durability are expected to increase the growth of the Global leather goods market.

Global leather goods market was valued at US$ 2932.5 Billion in 2021 in terms of revenue, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.18% during the forecast period (2022 to 2030).

Drivers

Designers worldwide showcase new apparel through fashion shows and events, thereby attracting more consumers toward leather clothing For instance, in September 2020, the Forever Leather Fashion show was organized in Shanghai, China. The show displayed a variety of leather products, including a range of modern-style jackets, cross-stitched trench coats, travel bags, leather sneakers, duffel bags, and ankle boots. Such instances bring together hundreds of thousands of leather buyers, manufacturers, and designers from different provinces.

An increasing number of High-Net-Worth Individuals (HNWIs), coupled with the growing trend of designer and branded clothes in major markets, such as the U.S., France, and China, is boosting the demand for leather products. Leather goods are exclusive and often premium priced. The demand for leather products is significantly growing in China owing to the increasing number of High Net worth Individuals (HNWIs) and Ultra-High Net worth Individuals (UHNWIs) in the country. According to the Global Wealth Report 2019, published in October 2019, by Credit Suisse Group AG, in 2018, China had 10% of the world’s total HNWIs.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a negative impact on the overall leather industry, including footwear, apparel, and accessories. Retailers faced severe losses during the first two quarters of 2020. According to a report by World Footwear in 2021, the sales of footwear declined by close to 32% in the U.S. at the end of 2020. Low demand for footwear, in general, is subsequently expected to decrease the sales of leather shoes. Many manufacturers in the industry have historically relied on China for finished products as well as raw materials used in the manufacturing of various leather goods. The pandemic has, however, disrupted the supply chain, causing severe losses in terms of product shipment and on-time delivery.
